Illustration Friday – Fleeting


Even though right now I'm looking forward to the arrival of spring, and all the beautiful flowers and green leaves - I know there will come that moment when summer will start to flee. The flowers will lose their bright, vivid colors, and a different kind of beauty will come to nature with brightly colored falling leaves. Nature, it seems, is always fleeting. This piece is called Summer's End.

I like your color combination. That is always my pitfall I can't harmonize. My favorite season is Autumn and unfortunately, we don't have much autumn foliage here. What an intricate illustration. Your words ring true. It wasn't long ago when I said it's 2008 already?! and look at where we are now...Swooosh! That's what time seems to me when I am having fun and it drags when I want it to flee. Thank you for your kind words and visit. Hello!

No, no, no, no! What? You're ending summer already here? Waaaaaahhhhh. Still, this is a brilliant and happy piece. Your work is always top notch, Valerie. And that is why I have something for you at my place.
